MODIS corrected reflectance true color data from both the Aqua (ascending node) and Terra (descending node) satellites were obtained at 250m resolution from http://gibs.earthdata.nasa.gov in an Antarctic Polar Stereographic Projection (epsg3031). We provide images for the ROSETTA-Ice region of interest as *.png files.
In general we will attempt to update Terra by 5 pm Pacific, and Aqua by 10 am Pacific.
Marked float locations updated as of 13-Nov-2016.
